Filton barber Mario backing ‘Movember’
Published on: 15 Nov 2013
Mario Parrinello, who runs the Filton Barber on Glooucester Road North, got the charity ‘Movember’ initiative off to a great start by giving fundraisers a clean shave before they grew their ‘tache’.
Mario carried out some hot towel shaves at the Swan Hotel in Almondsbury.
He will then return at the end of the month to remove all the moustaches, with, hopefully, lots of money having been raised.
He said: "It’s a pleasure and honour to be involved in such a great campaign. when you look into the statistics of cancer there’s not many of us who haven’t been touched by it in one way or another. This is a great way to raise awareness and funds and something that goes well with my trade. we are also offering free moustache trims to all MoBro’s during the month of Movember as we are an Official Mo Rated Barber.
Movember is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer.
